“Save yourself the time and don't even consider it...”

Written on: 24/10/2014

Couldn't get past the registration code dialog box. Only accepts numbers even though the registration code includes letters as well...what a waste. When I went to the website to get a refund, the process requires you, the user, to enter the last 6 digits of the UPC code. I tried all relevant combinations and the process failed there to as well. Just want my money back now at this point… Read Full Review

“Waste of money - a perfect compliment for Windows 8”

Written on: 11/06/2014 by mikeskits (1 review written)

I had more tools and features with the free Arcsoft software that came with my printer. I used this junk for 2 days and pretty much decided to uninstall and scrap it. Nothing makes any sense and you can't even do basic functions like cut, and paste, without a lot of hassles. You can't blend or smudge the edges of a pasted object.....An utter waste of money. The tool bar features are barely useable. The designers of this software should go to work for Microsoft -- or maybe they do… Read Full Review

“Not Windows 7 Friendly”

Written on: 13/10/2013

I Down loaded the product from the CD and it would start in a small window than crash. Windows said it was not Windows compatible with Windows 7. Contacted Nova about the problem. They said it was compatible with windows 7 and that I should tell them what Windows really said. (LOL) Is that a joke ? Must be a private one. I took the product back to the store. I would like a Photo system which would down load to my computer and work without having to fight with the manufactures. I would like a… Read Full Review

“Totally Worthless Photo Program”

Written on: 15/09/2013 by GypsyDyann (1 review written)

I got PHOTOS EXPLOSION DELUXE for Christmas--it has NO instructions and I couldn't make head or tails out of it! I had used another photo program and even made slide shows so I was not totally ignorant about using one. This one makes NO sense--gives you NO help--apparently costs lot (was a gift). They do not even have any online resources to refer to! Might as well take your money and throw it into the street!… Read Full Review

“Do NOT waste your money on this program”

Written on: 29/05/2013 by kolag (1 review written)

This is, by far, the worst photo program I've ever used. It routinely crashes in the middle of whatever you're doing and it is the exact opposite of user friendly. I can't believe they're allowed to charge money for this program. And don't bother to try and contact them because they will not respond… Read Full Review

“Annoying software”

Written on: 20/02/2013

I have used the previous versions of this product with no problems. Got the latest update to version 5 and nothing but problems with it. Every time I create a graphic using their pre arranges graphic like flame or clouds, the program stops responding and shuts down. Even when I tried to simply remove a background using the eraser, the program shut down. I even uninstalled it and reinstalled it 3 times. I am using windows 7. Never got any help with their customer support… Read Full Review

“Don't waste your money”

Written on: 22/07/2012 by vikingbart2003 (1 review written)

It can't clone. It can't blend. Cut and paste is very poor. Not as good as the beginners Microsoft Digital Suite 2006 which can do all of these and more than Photo Explosion Deluxe. A dead loss - wish I hadn't bought it… Read Full Review

Maryannw's Response to vikingbart2003's Review

Written on: 16/04/2013

I agree! I used Printmaster previously. Wish I had again. Photo Explosion Deluxe Version 5 is more than I can figure out, & I used to think I was relatively intelligent. (Maybe not.) No way can I send photos, that I have downloaded, to a removable file or anywhere else. Except that I have, indeed, managed to duplicate them into other files & now have many many duplicates. Will never again buy this program.

“I've been Photo Explosio, version, 3, 2,1 and before...”

Written on: 21/02/2011

I've been Photo Explosio, version, 3, 2,1 and before when it was Ulead,for the last 5 years. I was running it on XP. When we got Windows 7, it wouldn't run anymore. They came out with an "upgrade". Holy cow, it's a whole new program. The extentions are different and there are a ton of features. I've been struggling with how to paint to remove a part of a photo. This a.m. I pulled out the manual. I was in the wrong program! There's Photo explosion project studio and that's what I had been… Read Full Review

This software is completely different from the earlier version 2.0. It is very difficult to use and the documentation is of little help. I would not buy this product or recommend this product again… Read Full Review

“I've used Photoexplosion for over 3 years. I find it...”

Written on: 07/10/2009

I've used Photoexplosion for over 3 years. I find it easy to use and capable of doing many edits and corrections to my photography. I've used it for special effects, cloning background, removing shadows, resizing and cropping. It does use a lot of cpu and I find it is slow. Occasionally with large files it will freeze and I have to reboot. I've never used any other software so I don't have a lot to compare with… Read Full Review

Photo Explosion Deluxe takes up a lot of memory and space on my laptops, need to keep that in mind, not a bad point. Just love to create and be artistic and this program is the most wonderful one I have tried so far. Thanks… Read Full Review

Written on: 18/09/2004 by carolinem (1 review written)

Photo explosion is easy to use and has some great special effects and graphics. What prevents me from recommending it is when I ran my spyware checker it noted what it described as dangerous spareware and potential browser hijacker called 'Newtonknows' The only way to remove this is via the add/remove programme which means you have to keep reoading everytime you want to use it..... this spoils an otherwise great piece of software and reflects in my marking… Read Full Review
